Page a Story: From A to Z The concept behind each photograph
and description is to engage the child in a discussion. For example,
APPLES are red or green or yellow. Do you think that they taste
different? Did you know that some apples are best for baking pies,
others for making juice, and some are really delicious to eat.
Some apples are very hard and tart; some are very soft.
GUITARS have strings
that sing when someone plucks them. There are all kinds of ways
to make music. Many instruments have strings. Even the piano has
strings inside of it. The music starts when the a peice of wood
hits the strings inside the piano. Other intruments make music
when air is blown inside them, like horns. There are so many ideas
for reading ABC NYC to children. For more suggestions from A to

the Author: Marti Mackenzie began taking photos with a Kodak
Brownie camera as a child. A public relations consultant to the
legal profession, she often directs photo shoots, relying on talented
commerical photographers to achieve the look she wants for newsletters,
brochures and web projetcs for law firms in Florida, Texas and
In 1994, she purchased her 5005 Nikon for a trip to Cuba. Her
interest in photography has expanded and resulted in producing
ABC NYC, with the help of six friends and investors. The lenses
and equiptment mentioned in the author's notes at the back of
ABC NYC helped her to capture what her photographer's eye noticed
in the outdoor markets of New York City. She is currently working
on a second book, ABC FLA, with photos from Alligators to Zinnia's.
